Upcoming adaptation based on 4-panel manga by Kaori Hanzawa features animation by Nexus
The main voice cast has been revealed for Comic Girls, an upcoming TV anime based on the humorous 4-panel manga by Kaori Hanzawa about a group of four female comic artists working and living together in a dormitory-style arrangement. The main cast includes:
- Hikaru Akao as Kaoruko Moeta.
- Kaede Hondo as Koyume Koizuka.
- Saori Ōnishi as Ruki Irokawa.
- And Rie Takahashi as Tsubasa Katsuki.
The original Comic Girls manga is serialized in Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Max seinen manga magazine. The story follows Kaoruko Moeta, a 15-year-old high school student who makes yonkoma manga under the pen name of "Chaos". After a reader survey ranks Kaoruko at rock bottom, her editor recommends a transfer to an all-female manga creator dorm, where Kaoruko lives and commiserates with fellow mangaka Koyume Koizuka (a shojo manga artist), Ruki Irokawa (an ecchi manga artist), and Tsubasa Katsuki (a shonen manga artist).
The Comic Girls TV anime is directed by Yoshinobu Tokumoto and features animation by Nexus. The release date for the series has not yet been revealed.
